Free images for worship, talks and events

terms & conditions for using the Imagebank

If I upload images, what are my rights?

You retain all ownership rights to Content uploaded to Imagebank. All files are uploaded into a folder with your user name. By uploading images into the imagebank you are agreeing that they be made freely available under the imagebank terms and conditions set out below. You're also agreeing that Imagebank administrators have a perpetual royalty-free license to store, index, manipulate, incorporate into other works to be made available under the imagebank license, and make publicly available the images. As you'd expect, we reserve the right to refuse to list images which we consider are not appropriate for use in Christian worship, talks or events, including any material considered pornographic, indecent, rude, irrelevant or defamatory.

By uploading files to the imagebank you also confirm that you are either the owner of the copyright in the images uploaded, or that the copyright owner has agreed to make the images available under the terms of the imagebank license and the conditions noted above. Imagebank will not be held responsible for copyright infringement by users uploading. Copyright in all works always remains with the uploading user.
